Taxpayers Hold Governor to His Promise

Des Moines, IA – Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Matt Strawn had this to say after Governor Culver’s office told news media that he will repay the state $13,000, or 10 percent of his salary:

“I am happy to see the governor commit to returning 10% of his total salary to the state, even if it took public pressure and media reports to make him fulfill his promise to Iowa taxpayers.”
